CT. Lawmakers Gear Up For Nup Battle

Some homo-loving Connectiut lawmakers have proposed a bill that will allow gay people to marry. Appropriately, the bill will be introduced on February 14th.

The Boston Globe reports:

Two Democratic lawmakers said Wednesday that they will introduce a bill to allow gay marriage within the next two weeks.

Republican Gov. M. Jodi Rell has vowed to veto such a bill, but Sen. Andrew McDonald, D-Stamford, and Rep. Michael Lawlor, D-East Haven, co-chairmen of the Judiciary Committee, said they plan to press ahead anyway.

Lawlor and McDonald said they plan to introduce their bill by Feb. 14, the deadline for new legislation.

The kids will certainly have their lovey-dovey work cut out for them.

In fact, the battle’s already begun. Family Institute of Connecticut president Brian Brown got all haterific by convening a press conference urging lawmakers to hold a state-wide referendum on the matter. McDonald pointed out that state law doesn’t allow such a tally, but opponent Lou DeLuca says he’ll push for one once the matter reaches the Senate floor. Super!

(You kids may have noticed we erroneously reported that this was happening in Massachusetts. It’s not. It’s Connecticut. We blame sleep deprivation. Apologies)
